NDAL conference 2017

Since its founding in 1990, this natural design conference–organized by LWLA’s educational affiliate New Directions in the American Landscape (NDAL)–has avoided trendy jargon in favor of landscape techniques that succeed in the real world. The 29th annual NDAL conference explores a core challenge of contemporary landscape design: blending plants, wildlife, and people in spaces that advance ecological function and are enjoyable to be in. While the destination is clear, the route is complex and often ill-defined or nonexistent. Learn from real world experiences of a select group of landscape architects and designers who are successfully navigating this challenge.
